  • Culbera Museum, open Friday thru Sunday. $1.00 donation. Sonja is the curator, retired teacher. Located on RT 250 heading towards Zoni Beach.
  • Amazing - Untouched beautiful beaches and hiking with all kinds of wildlife everywhere. This needs to be preserved for future generations to enjoy. Took a charter with Captain Louis Padron out to the island. Had a great time! This is a must do if you're in Culebra.
  • Absolutely s must visit. The beaches are a must see. Do take the rent a jeep, do fly over (ferry is locals first and not guaranteed) and do spend a night as you'll find you need longer than a day. Happy get-a-away....
  • Loved it an before visiting culebra beach def going back
  • Culebra is amazing, purchased a tour on a boat, word of caution...ride is extremely bumpy and made me sea sick, take a life jacket since the boat docks away from actual beach and you'll have to swim to it. Other than that, the swim is worth it, good snorkeling available right off the beach, water is warm, perfect for swimming, clean and not crowded.
